IDRC invests in knowledge, innovation, and solutions to improve lives and livelihoods in the developing world. We focus on collaborative partnerships and projects proposed by research institutions and individuals.
 
To build a critical mass of knowledge in our priority areas, we fund individual research projects as well as larger research programs in collaboration with other donors.
 
We mainly support developing-country researchers. There are opportunities, however, for joint research projects between developing-country institutions and Canadian or international researchers and institutions.
 
We also offer fellowships and awards to both Canadian and developing-country graduate students.
